“Good afternoon everyone,
Our truck was stollen last night , i was parked at South Picket st , Alexandria Va last night @ around 6pm to get the paint job done , and this morning truck was not there. We have called 3 tow companies and none of them has it. Police said it has been stolen. Please call 911 if you see it. Here’s some pictures of my truck”
I have to complete 6 hours of court ordered community service. I would like to do it in the neighborhood [Petworth] and I thought maybe the readers may have some suggestions. It cannot be a church or school and the place has to be 501(c)(3) organization.
What did I do to get this? Reckless driving charge for going over 80 mph on route 81. In VA reckless driving is anything going over 80mph (no matter the posted speed-in my case it was 70mph) or 20 mph over the posted speed limit and it is a Class 1 Misdemeanor. One step below a felony.
DO NOT SPEED IN VA!!
People have gone to jail over this so I consider myself lucky for now. My charge will be reduced to Improper Driving if I satisfy all of the following by October 8th review.
-pay $500 fine
-complete drivers improvement
-complete 6 hours of community service
-infraction free until review date
Not to mention lawyer fees.
The maximum penalty for reckless driving is:
-Twelve months in jail
-Six months suspension of your Virginia driver’s license
-Six months suspension of your privilege to operate a motor vehicle in Virginia if you are licensed elsewhere,
-A fine of up to $2,500″
Last Saturday I was bicycling the W & OD trail and at the 25.5 mile mark (44652 Guilford Drive, Ashburn, VA) I saw a sign on the side of the trail pointing to the “Old Ox” brewpub. I figured “how bad can it be if it serves beer,” so I rode in and saw a warehouse space that’s been converted into a beer garden style pub and brewery. The place was full and just about everyone there arrived on a bike. Beer was not awful – the staff was great.”
Anyone else ever been? They’re having a party next Saturday:
Thanks to a reader for sending. From the Arlington Sun Gazette:
“Cullen on Oct. 18 was sentenced to 12 years in state prison after pleading guilty to eight counts of grand larceny with the intent to sell, and one count of burglarious tools, following his arrest on charges of stealing bicycles in the county.”
“Top Chef All-Stars Runner-Up, Mike Isabella, announces plans to open a new Greek restaurant in the 4,700 square foot space at 4000 Wilson Blvd. in the Ballston neighborhood of Arlington, VA. Kapnos Taverna, set to open in summer 2014, is a sister restaurant to Kapnos, Isabella’s Northern Greek-inspired restaurant, which opened on the 14th Street Corridor just two months ago in early July.
“Guests have been asking me to build a restaurant in Virginia or Maryland since we opened Graffiato in 2011. Kapnos has been wildly popular in its first few months, and we think this sister concept will be a great addition to the booming neighborhoods in Arlington,” said chef/owner Mike Isabella. “Next spring, our team will travel to Greece, and we plan to build the menu around reinterpretations of regional cuisine.”
Isabella’s team plans to showcase their dishes from the Cyclades, Peloponnese, Thessaloniki, Ionian Islands and Crete. While the Kapnos Taverna menu will include some dishes from the original Kapnos, there will be some noticeable differences, including the addition of weekday lunch, weekend brunch and a happy hour menu. Kapnos Taverna will have one rotating spit, instead of two, to roast whole chickens, lamb and pork shoulders.
The bar program will include up to 10 cocktails on tap and the largest wine program in Isabella’s family of restaurants. More than 200 bottles will be displayed in a two-story glass enclosed case built to stretch from the first floor to the mezzanine. The 185-seat restaurant will also feature a 40-seat seasonal outdoor patio.”
